Wireless routers on DMZ

I have an adsl service at my office with 2 fixed ip's - one for an old Eicon router and one for a pix501. The eicon uses a vdmz to pass the 2nd ip on to the pix outside, leaving a 1.x lan outside the pix.  My network sits safely on the inside of the pix.  The external lan is made available to visitors to share the broadband without them being able to access my internal lan.  This now needs to be expanded: I need to cater for 2 sets of clients in different areas of the building using wireless and who must not be able to see each other.

I can get a 3rd fixed ip from the isp, can I hang 2 wireless routers on the adsl router, each with its own ip address and different subnets with dhcp and password protection?

I have to upgrade my adsl router anyway, and it shouldn't be a wireless one. If my office lan needs wireless I would have to hang it on the inside of the pix anyway.

If this is technically feasible, any advice on an adsl router (UK), and the wireless ones?  I was looking at the vigor 2700 series a while back which seemed to fit the bill for the adsl as I also have a vpn to my home through the pix.

Quick guidance appreciated so 500 points
